From the Inside Flap
"The problems which John faced in his day are strikingly the problems of our own time, and the objectives which he sets before himself are objectives which Christians today must also have if they are to grow in grace and are to continue to present the authentic message of the Word of God to their contemporaries."
James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was also president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour on which Boice was a speaker for more than thirty years. His many commentaries include The Minor Prophets, Psalms, The Gospel of Matthew, The Gospel of John, Acts, Romans, Ephesians, Daniel, and The Sermon on the Mount.
From the Back Cover
The three letters of John found near the end of the New Testament have a tendency to be oversimplified or simply overlooked in the study of the Scriptures. However, though these letters may on the surface seem less applicable to our time because they address heresies and church management issues that seem unique to the early church, careful study reveals just how contemporary these concerns are.
In this volume of James Montgomery Boice's popular commentary series, pastors, Bible students, and laypersons will find analysis of John's timeless messages of righteousness, truth, and love. Boice explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and subject by subject. Clear language and an approachable style make this commentary accessible and enlightening. Within the pages are important lessons on
-The essence of Christianity
-Assurance of salvation
-Identification of false teachings
-Proper treatment of God's servants
-Interaction between the church and the world
-Living a righteous life

The Boice Expository Commentary series was not just written by Boice but it "IS" James Boice. You can hear him speak through the words of this book and all the books in this series. These commentaries are not academic expositions of scripture but practical expositions with a focus on application. Very pastoral. I love using these commentaries in preparation for teaching small group studies.
